Get Qualifying for the Team GBR F9U Drone Racing Team!

If you weren’t aware already, a few events have been popping up in the drone racing scene that are debuting as qualifying events for a ‘team selection’ event. We’ve had a few questions regarding these events so we thought we’d clear some of that up for you.

So what is the team and what is it for?

Well, these are the Team Selection events for the Team GBR F9U Drone Racing Team which will compete in the FAI World Cup.

How many qualifying events will there be?

There will be a further 3 TS (Team Selection) events held throughout 2021, the first of which will be hosted in Hull on the 23rd of May. Details found here: Further TS events will be announced in due course.

How does the qualifying work?

Your best 3 of 4 events scores (based on qualifying results of said events) will go into a ranking table and they will be counted towards crowning the top pilots of the Team Selection process.

4 Events, you just said 3?

The 2019 FAI qualifying event at Barkston Heath also counts due to the 2020 F9U WDRC being postponed due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Does this put me at a disadvantage if I did not attend or scored badly?

No, because 3 of the 4 TS events count, you can still attend the remaining 3 events yet to be ran and become part of the the team.

Where can I find more information?

Feel free to ask us any questions you may have or you can read the ins and outs in full detail in the FAI rule book.
